Description of Goods and accuracy of information
Product specifications and images and other information published on our web site have either been made accessible by suppliers, manufacturer's, publications, publicists, or been gathered from public-domain sources. mcmichaels.co.uk make every effort to ensure that the web site and any advertising is as accurate as possible although cannot always guarantee the reliability and accuracy of all information that is published. Full details and specifications are also available from the manufacturer's brochure or web site. Product features and accessories are subject to upgrade or change at the manufacturers' discretion. We will supply you the product as supplied to us by the manufacturer.

Suitability of Goods ordered
It is the responsibility of the individual user to ensure that goods they select and order are suitable for the purpose they intend to use them. We may, at our discretion accept goods returned to us in these circumstances provided that they remain unopened, complete and unused. Goods accepted under these circumstances may be subject to a handling fee of up to 15% at the discretion of mcmichaels.co.uk . It will be your responsibility to cover all carriage costs involved.

Product Warranty
All goods purchased on our site are covered by the terms and conditions of the manufacturers warranty that unless otherwise stated are 12 months from the date of dispatch to the stated delivery address. The manufacturer warranty specifically excludes faults caused by accident, neglect, and misuse. In addition routine maintenance (cleaning of dirty audio/video heads etc.), consumables (styli, plug fuses, cables, batteries, etc.), cosmetic damage and tuning of channels are not covered. Where a product is returned for service and an engineer finds no mechanical or electrical fault with your product the service company may charge you. This does not affect your statutory rights

Product Warranty - TFT LCD Monitors and Televisions
TFT displays are made up of thousands of tiny pixels. For example, a 15" flat-screen with a resolution of 1024 x 768 has 786423 pixels. Each pixel comprises of three sub-pixels (red, green and blue) making almost 2.4 million dots. Behind each pixel is a transistor. When a transistor fails it manifests itself as a bright, dark or colored dot on the screen that stands out from the rest.

Today's production techniques unfortunately cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free screen display and buyers should be aware of the possibility of imperfections (in the form of a few isolated constantly lit or unlit pixels) before choosing to purchase a TFT monitor or television. Due to this, there is indeed a commonly accepted 'tolerance level' by which TFTs may display such imperfections (or stuck pixels) without being classified as faulty. As such, we can only take back displays as faulty for refund/repair if the number of stuck pixels exceeds the manufacturer's guidelines. The number required for the monitor or television to be classed as faulty does vary between manufacturers. Please check with the relevant manufacturer as to their 'tolerance level'
